      We get some information on pricing for the Cruze Hatch


    This fall will see the Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback arrive at dealerships. Pricing for the new Cruze variant will start at $22,190 (includes a $875 destination charge). Compared to the sedan, the Cruze Hatch is about $5,000 more. It should be noted that the hatchback isn't offered in the base L or LS trims like the sedan. The more apt comparison would the Cruze LT sedan which begins at $20,695. Comparing the prices of the LT models sees a difference of $1,495.

     

    The Cruze Hatchback will use the same turbocharged 1.4: four-cylinder engine with 153 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque. No word if the hatchback will get a manual transmission or if it will be just an automatic only model.

     

    Compared to the sedan, the Cruze hatchback offers an additional 3.7 cubic feet of space behind the rear seats (18.5 vs. 14.​8 cubic feet). Space increases to 42 cubic feet when the rear seats are folded.

    2017 CHEVROLET CRUZE HATCHBACK STARTS AT $22,190

     

    DETROIT – The all-new 2017 Cruze Hatchback will start at $22,190 when it arrives in dealerships this fall. The price includes the destination charge, but not tax, title and other dealer fees.

     

    The Cruze Hatch is the latest addition to the expanding Cruze lineup, which was redesigned for 2016. It will be offered in LT and Premier trims, and with the RS package.

     

    Sharing the Ecotec 1.4L turbo and dynamic driving experience of the sedan, the Cruze Hatch offers increased cargo space of up to 47.2 cubic feet (1,189 L). Along with the sedan, it is the most connected car on the road, with segment-exclusive technologies such as 4G LTE with Wi-Fi hotspot, Teen Driver and wireless charging. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility make the most of Cruze’s connectivity with a smartphone.

    WOW, until I looked at the upper left corner and saw the Chevy Logo, I thought they were showing off a Mazda. That long ass nose and over all body shape reminds me of a Mazda CX3.

    It's premature to assume these things until we see what it comes with standard.

    That's a bit much....

     

     

    You would think they would make these in L and LS trim, as small businesses would use them (think HHRish)

    It is pricey, but it is also a more up level trim Cruze.  I am not sure how it compares to all those other cars trim levels though.  And Car and Driver just has a comparison in this segment which the Mazda 3 won for the 3rd time in a row, so that is still the best buy.  I don't think the Cruze hatch is overpriced compared to the Cruze sedan, when you look at it that way the hatch might be a good value, it costs about the same equally equipped.

     

    I think the Sonic and Spark need combined into one sub-compact cheap car, that is like $13,500 and bare bones.  The Cruze should shrink in size and price closer to what the Sonic is now, this way Malibu and Impala stick around.  As they push the Cruze up market, it gets right on top of the Malibu, and big cars aren't selling, if the Malibu grows anymore they'll discontinue the Impala.

    You're definitely right but that sucks that you're again forced into a package if you want a hatch. 

     

    A lot of people like the added space and ability of a hatch and you have to pony up a few grand more for Chevy's as opposed to those others listed. Not everybody wants or can afford the creature comforts but need the space of a hatch.

    I agree with that. It sucks not having a cheaper model but I get why they would want a higher margin model out first. Maybe they will tweak that next year.

    I think the pricing is fine. I mean, in terms of driving refinement, this Cruze is easily the match or better of the Golf.

     

    And again, I want the American car to cost more than imports - in every essense. It's the better car. Buy it, and make America great again, by seeing the USA in a Chevrolet.

     

    We, as North Americans should not look to get a home team discount, not when they're kicking ass and taking names. No, we need to respect them the only way possible, by realizing that all this greatness, from GM, Ford, and even FCA US comes at a cost.

    No offense but that is simply the worst thing they could possibly do is to price their cars (assuming they are comparably equipped, mind you) HIGHER than the imports. This isn't Cadillac we are talking about here. This is the ultra competitive compact market, where price is (whether you like it or not) king and you price competitively if you want to succeed in that market.

    Well, it's not a base model, so... I think its is priced competitively. I think the base price is not low because it's priced high, but because of the omission of a model with less features. Which is admirable, and to me it is a sigh they do want to go further.

     

    And it is a great car...easily worth $2000 over the Toyopets. It is rivals with the current engine right now are the Civic hatch, and Golf.

    I'm not saying the car isn't worth what they are asking but that wasn't what you were suggesting and as a result not what I was talking about. You think they should be priced more and if the competition is comparably equipped, then you don't just ask for more money just because you think it's worth more. It's worth more when it is seen as being just as reliable and bullet proof as a Honda Civic. Then, you can start carrying the same premium that a Civic does in the average customers mind.

    Real prices on the Cruze that are out there now are quite a bit higher than the outgoing Cruze. The new Cruze is priced pretty tough. It will take a long time for the customer base to get used to it.

    The new Cruze LT doesn't come with leather wrap wheel and I think there is a tech pkg upgrade that is an option. The hatch will probably get those things standard.

    I would bet the hatch has extra kit over a base LT. I will guess too the automatic is standard and manual is probably a delete option.

    Agreed....in my case, I just don't need all the toys. Heck, I miss the fact that the Focus hatch used to come with steelies in base trim (Roads here in MI are really, really, bad) I had a cavalier wagon and I was quite fine with that. The hatch should be a choice, not a luxury option. Heck, for a few grand more, I might as well get a Nox then....

     

    Get the feeling GM will get burned here.....

    Let me inject some real world here. 

    The Hatch is going to be a low volume model and it is going to be more expensive to build. 

     

    Because it is lower volume and to help cover the added cost they make it only available on the upper level trims. This is the same tact that they took with the Diesels as the cars were not cheap to build and will be low volume. 

     

    By doing this they can keep the cost to with in $200 of the LT sedan. Also doing production in Mexico will also try to keep expenses down. 

    The reality is while many on the web say build it, build it not that many are expected to buy. To make money and at least offer a package that looks attractive and still hold some profit the higher package is only offered at least for now. 

    I suspect if the demand is higher they may offer more versions but right now they really don't expect a ton of sales. Lets face it if not for the sales outside the states there would be no hatch here as development cost are just not in line. 

     

    The real issue here is this is not a big segment, GM is not importing them in from overseas where they are made at a lower cost and it is just a tough segment to make money in with the way and the numbers GM expects. 

    Note today automakers are picking and choosing models more on total profit potential and not just making some money. They are now looking at models to see what is the most profitable and even if it is making a small profit the model can be dropped and replaced with a more profitable model. We just saw this with the Verano. Buick will get a new model we have yet to see but it will be expected to sell in higher numbers and make more money. 

     

    Just making a simple profit is just not enough anymore. 

     

    The truth is if everyone who said to build it buys one we would have a run away hit but you know they won't. 

     

    The end game here is GM is not building cars anymore just to survive but now they can pick and choose to make the most profit with where they are at. Also they are out to build cars people will buy and not just want to buy. 

     

    As for the prices listed. lets face it most will have $2K of options added in most cased and put them right where the Chevy is anyway., Few people buy stripped models anymore and $19K does not buy you much in the compact class anymore. 

     

    If anything GM can market the hatch as a better value as most of what people want will already be in the car.

    that's bunk to say it costs more to make the hatch.

     

    i'd love for you to prove to us why that statement has any water to it whatsoever.  Because its absolute bunk.  I bet you would say that about VW and the Golf too

     

    Chevy's big problem with the Cruze is going to be that they punted big time on the styling.  They dumbed it down to play to the Corolla / old Civic crowd.  There's no sizzle in the steak anymore.  In the meantime, Honda does the opposite and turns the Civic into a sexy machine.

     

    Some of the cars in the compact class are pushing 20-30% in the US for hatch sales.  The millennials love hatches.  I see a ton around, Mazda 3's , Foci, Elantras, Even if the Cruze sells 10-15% as hatches they will be in the thick.

    I've read many recent articles stating the hatchback bodystyle is trending upward in sales over the next few years.  I believe it.

    Completely understandable. They honestly just make more sense with the added space for a car that will get the same mpg and basically cost the same...but you get more room. I love the hatch design. 

     

    I don't agree with only offering a premium trim level, unless it is just a first year thing like Surreal suggested, because they will make it unattainable for some in a class of vehicle that was once marketed around the cheap and affordable.

    Yes, as a Sir General Moron, I want/decree that American/domestic cars to be priced higher than the competition, because it is evident of their superiority everywhere, in mostly every segment - and yes also those levels of pricing need to be enforced world-wide. Chevy is now way better than Toyopet. And even with Honda. Even VW in like for like segments of the market.

    Or they could just make a superior product and let the product sell itself.. it will be a long road but with a price advantage and a superior product they would own the market, hands down. 

     

    If the product truly is the best then it is only a matter of time before the own the market, if it isn't then it won't.

    "better"

     

    In what way(s)? That's a subjective thing to say and that alone means they cannot price their cars above the competition. There are just too many variables in a decision making process for spending tens of thousands of dollars on a car that one brand and car will never be "better" across the entire board. It just isn't possible. Okay, it's possible if the competition just decided to give up but that is not realistic.

    Well, I think the Cruze is better than the Toyota CorollaToaster...more refined, nicer interior, better engine, a real transmission, better fuel economy, and more high tech made conventional like Android Auto/Carplay.

     

    I think the Silverado is better than the Tundrarizer - the 6.2 crushes the iForce V8, and the Silverado is more refined, Toyota may have a better off-road truck variants, but that's too nichey, and most trucks in their regular 4x4 forms are pretty capable with software assistance like hill descent control. 

     

    I think the Malibu is totally superior to the Toyota Crapry. Better interior, a real effort of styling (except both car's front ends make me retch), I would say the base engine of the Malibu is far better than the 2.5 in the Crapry, and makes up for the slight difference of the LTG and the 2GR-FE. Plus the Malibu Hybrid...

     

    I think the Impala and Avalon are pretty much even - some things of the Impala are better, the Avalon has a nicer interior and a smoother engine, but lacks Android Auto, Carplay, and also has a smaller trunk. I think the Avalon hybrid being a bonus is less a thing because the Malibu is already now a sizable family car like the Fusion, so making a large sedan is kind of less impactful.

     

    And in terms of subcompacts, $h! even a Spark is superior to the Yaris...YOU know that too.

     

    And then the only small car that Toyota makes is good is a disguised Mazda. But still, why make it themselves, when they can just get a Mazda?

     

    And then large suvs - Tahoe wipes the floor of the Sequioa....

     

    YES, Toyopet is clearly outclassed, and Hyundai is the Toyopet that you MUST buy if you simply cannot live without a Toyotpet.

     

    And in terms of luxo...maybe Lexus still has it slightly on build quality and materials - but a combination of luxo/performance, Cadillac reigns SUPREME.

    By mocking the Toyota products you're basically just saying you're biased against them and your argument is useless because it is too opinion based. "better" X Y and Z but nothing about that is factual. 

     

    I think the only one that is a hands-down winner is the Silverado over the Tundra and that's mostly because of the multitude of variations that the Silverado is available in. 

     

    You also conveniently skilled over one of their most dominant vehicles in its own market, the Pruis. 

     

    I'm honestly not saying one is better than the other and at the same time, that is my point. To you, the entire GM lineup crushes the Toyota lineup. To some body else it could be completely flipped. And, with the Cruze being brand new, it should be ahead in most measurable categories. To us, we would rather a conventional auto transmission, to non-enthusiasts, they would likely just prefer the seamless CVT junk that we can't stand. 

     

    Just playing a little Devil's advocate here, brother.

    Not my statement but someone from GM.

     

    But it is plausible just due to the fact that they will makeup only 1/4 of sales at best and the less you make of some the higher cost per unit. 

    Add to that you have to have additional cost of crash testing over fewer models and the additional glass and sheet metal used along with more upgraded trim panels that need to be finished vs just trunk matting. 

    Also factor in that they sell less Cruze globally than most other models since they are no longer in Europe. That really hurts as Europe is the largest hatch market there is. 

     

    As for Millennials they are far from the largest segment of buyers and not essentially a profit center for an automaker. 

    This is one of those deals where you have to just use some common sense. If there were large profits here GM would be into it whole hog but the fact is this is not a major profit center and while others may make some money GM can make much more with other models like the Nox etc and sell them well north of the 200K unit mark per year vs. 15K-25K. 

     

    GM I think is just testing the waters and if people respond you will see more if not then don't expect a lot of hatches. 

    As for trends the smaller cars will have hatches as that is the only way you can carry anything. But from Compact up it is a sedan market as a whole. You need to use your trends in context as you have to factor the hatches are made up more by sub compact and micro cars as a whole. 

     

    Companies like Ford, Mazda and VW sell their hatches globally in all areas not like Chevy that only covers part of he globe. 

     

    People respond here expect higher volumes and cheaper models. Till then it is a LT and hell $22k is not much for a car anymore when the average price is now over $35K. As for the low ball cars you don't get much there anymore,

      At an event in Detroit this evening, Chevrolet took the wraps off the Tahoe and Suburban SUVs. We don't have specs yet to publish, but wanted to get the pictures out for you to see.  I will be updating the article as more details come out. 
      Six different trims will be offered including the new High Country trim, an RST trim, and Z71 becomes its own trim line instead of being offered as a separate package. LS, LT, and Premier trims carry on. Engines are the 5.3-liter and 6.2-liter V8s, but the 3.0L Duramax will also be joining the lineup. The 5.3 and 6.2 now sport dynamic fuel management. All engines send power to the wheels through a 10-speed automatic. The Duramax is available on every trim except Z71.
      The power ratings are:
      5.3-Liter - 355 Horsepower at 5600 RPM / 383 lb-Ft of torque at 4100 RPM 6.2-Liter - 420 Horsepower at 5600 RPM / 460 lb-ft of torque at 4100 RPM 3.0-Liter Duramax - 277 Horsepower at 3750 RPM / 460 lb-ft of torque at 1500 RPM The column shifter is gone, replaced with a new pushbutton design placed on the dash.  Thanks to a fully independent rear suspension, they both gain room inside. Magnetic Ride Control and an Air Ride Adaptive Suspension (available on Z71 and High Country) are available. The Air Ride suspension offers adjustable height of up to 4-inches at all four corners .
      The dash sports a 10-inch touchscreen infotainment center standard. Buyers can opt for a rear seat entertainment system with twin 12.6-inch displays. Interior room is up; Tahoe sports 40 percent more third-row leg room and 66 percent more cargo volume behind the third row. While maximum cargo room is up 30 percent, the overall length increased only 4 percent. This is done on a wheelbase that is 4.9 inches longer than the 2020 model.  Suburban gets a 4.1 inch increase in wheelbase so that interior cargo volume increases 19 percent while overall length increases 1.3 inches.

      Chevrolet has released pricing of the new Trailblazer crossover that is coming to the U.S. market in early 2020.  
      The base L model is the one that will start below $20k at $19,995. It comes with a 1.2-liter turbocharged 3-cylinder, front wheel drive, and a continuously variable transmission.  Inside it carries a 7.0 inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard. Standard on the L are 16 inch steel wheels with wheel covers. All-wheel drive is not available on the L.
      Moving up to the LS model which starts at $22,495 allows you to option into all-wheel drive for an additional $2,000. Opting for all-wheel drive also means you get a 0.1-liter engine upgrade to the 1.3 liter 3-cylinder that makes 155 horsepower.  Wheels are upgrades to 17-inch alloys.
      The LT will set you back $24,595, again standard with FWD and the 1.2-liter unless you spend an extra $2,000 for AWD and the 1.3-liter. However, you can opt for the 1.3-liter on its own at the LT level. 
      The Activ (pictured, top) which starts at $26,395 is billed as the off-road trim. It comes with a revised fascia with a larger grille opening, unique 17-inch wheels, all-terrain tires, changes to the dampers, and the 1.3-liter standard in both FWD or AWD models. This time, AWD costs $1,500 to select. 
      Then there is the RS (pictured, right) which also starts at $26,395. It also comes standard with the 1.3-liter engine with a $1,500 AWD option. The changes to the RS are mostly appearance changes to make it look more sporty.
      The Trailblazer goes on sale in Spring 2020.
